2# Watch a Concert at the Gran Teatre del Liceu:

Enjoying a classical concert or an opera is an opportunity you should make the most of while you’re in Barcelona. Also known as Liceu in Spanish, the concert hall has over 2000 seats with six levels. Ticket prices aren’t as high as you might think for Barcelona and vary depending on the performer. If you’re not into classical genres, it’s also possible to get a guided tour to see the inside of this old hall.

3# See the Sagrada Familia:

Gaudi himself designed this majestic structure, which is one of the most iconic buildings in Catalonia. Although, it’s still under construction, visitors can still marvel at the architecture and learn about the history of the cathedral. Sagrada Familia is a typical spot on the tourist itineraries in Barcelona, make sure you book your tickets online and arrive early to avoid the crowds.

4# Watch the Sunrise or Sunset at Montjuic:

Montjuic would be the best place to get a great view of Barcelona. You can choose to hike to the top early in the morning for a bit of an exercise and catch the sunrise. Or use the cable car to take you to the top for the sunset. Be sure to check their website for up to date ticket prices.

5# Join the Free Walking Tour:

Almost every destination in Europe has a free walking tour. A guide will take you around the famous landmarks in the city explaining the story behind each one. Walking tours allow visitors to get to know the city before exploring on their own. You can also use it to your advantage to meet other fellow travellers and make new friends. Usually free walking tours are tip-based, though it’s entirely up to you the amount you want to give. It’s also a good way to save costs rather than paying a hefty fee for a private guide giving a similar tour.
